Hello again, lovelies! Man, it feels weird (but truly wonderful) to be posting again. I do have a ton to share about what has happened with my Mom's Cancer, my dad, and all that, but until I get my shorter set of gels done tomorrow, typing is the biggest pain in the universe. I have to type with the tips of my nails, which is not very comfy. Less than 24 hours though, and I'll have a lovely set of UV Gels to protect my poor babies until they have free edge again!

Today I have the 2nd polish from the upcoming Life 2.0 Collection from Daring Digits. This entire collection has me so excited that it might literally destroy me to wait to swatch more until those new gels are done tomorrow. I'm actually hoping that none of you ask me to choose a fave when these are all posted as well, since I don't honestly think I could.

So today's DD beauty is called "The Sum", and she's a grey crelly loaded, and I mean LOADED, with different shapes and sizes of Neon glitter. We see alot of neon glitters in clear and white bases, and gre crellies with pastel glitters, but grey with neon is something that is pretty unique in my stash. This polish was inspired by an epiphany Ashely had at an ACA (Adult Children of Alcoholics and Dysfunctional Families) Meeting - that she is "The Sum" of her decisions, and the she has is happy and has no regrets about the decisions that she has made to get to this point in her life. WAY TO GO ASH!!! Let's celebrate with a festive ton of neon glitter!!!!

This is 2 coats of "The Sum" topped with a generous coat of Glitter Food and NPB Digital Flash:

Also, please let me know which hand position you prefer! Old poses die hard (the first 4), but I'm trying to expand my horizons a bit!

First of all, I have no clue why my background looks so overexposed! My pics don't look like that in preview or PS! Yikes!! But you aren't here for my background, right? Right!

Back to The Sum...ZOMG!! Tell me this polish is not just cool as all get out! I am loving the grey base and all those yummy neons! Talk about a party on your nails. It almost looks like a neon flecked pebble. So cool!

The Sum is packed to the gills with glitter, so application is a bit different than your usual glitter polish. Don't be afraid to use what looks to be alot of polish, since what you'll see on your brush is not all base color. Application itself really isn't tricky - you can just polish this on as usual, but you do want to be careful at the tips, or the glitters may stick up from the free edge a bit. I wrapped my tips with just one coat, but with these kinds of glitters I usually skip it. These neon glitters will disperse nice and evenly, but because there are so many of them, this polish will dry very textured. A good coat of Glitter Food and a top coat (or a couple coats of top coat) will smooth things out. The Sum is opaque in 2 coats, and I would only go for a third if you don't mind a thicker mani. What really blew me away though was that despite all those glitters? The Sum dried uber fast! Alwaya bonus!

I have to tell ya, This polish has just been so much fun. In fact, I'm still wearing it! I have to remove my current gels tonight, but I refuse to take this polish off until I have to. There's just something about a Daring Digits polish that just makes me utterly giddy!

So, now that you're seeing some of these new DD babies, what do you think? I hope you're excited about the other 3 I have coming up! They are doozies!

The Daring Digits Life 2.0 Collection will be available on 4/26 at DaringPolish.Com. The Sum will be available for $9 per bottle (full size only for this launch!), and the whole collection can be grabbed for $37.50.

Keep up with Daring Digits on Facebook and Instagram for release info and more pics.

And once again I am off to attempt to be productive. I am literally counting the hours until I can get these crazy talons off and a shorter, nicer set done so I can swatch more DD!! What are all of you lovelies up to this weekend?

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Polishing!
